In our first video from this Propaganda series from Local Transport, Afshin Dehkordi introduces us to an ongoing project of his based in Iran. Iranian born Dehkordi has produced work over recent years that helps him to understand a place he’s from, but is unfamiliar after leaving as a child. Children are also at the heart of his new work, giving Iranian school children disposable cameras to document their lives away from controlled environments. This in turn looks at the role of the photographer within the language of propaganda.
